(Reuters) - U.S.-China trade negotiations have 'hit a snag' over farm purchases, with China not wanting a deal that looks one-sided in the favor of the United States, the Wall Street Journal reported on.wsj.com/2CEYDR7 on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

“We can always stop the purchases if things get worse again,” a Chinese official was quoted as having said in the report.
